Decom North Sea Award Winners Unveiled

Decom North Sea has revealed winners of the 2018 Decom North Sea Awards, on Tuesday.

Decom North Sea revealed the three winners, with categories covering innovation, collaboration and individual achievement across the decommissioning sector.

Sponsored by The Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC), the Outstanding Innovation category was won by BiSN for its Wel-Lok M2M well sealant technology.

The Excellence in Collaboration award, sponsored by Port of Cromarty Firth, was presented to Shell U.K. – Boskalis – Veolia-Peterson, for demonstrating how collaborative working and sharing best practice can maximize recycling of assets and drive sustainability in the industry.

Mark Bayman, who has recently retired from the position of decommissioning manager (Technical) at OPRED, was presented with the Contribution to the Decommissioning Sector accolade.

Decom North Sea’s interim chief executive Tom Leeson said: “As Mark steps down from his role at OPRED (previously BEIS), it is wholly appropriate to recognize his significant contribution to both the decommissioning sector, the wider industry and Decom North Sea.

“Constantly acting as a pragmatic and approachable conduit between industry and the regulator, he has been inspirational in his role as technical adviser within OPRED, bringing many practical approaches to the attention of his colleagues with the aim of cost-effective, achievable decommissioning.”

The evening also saw the announcement of Decom North Sea’s new Decommissioning Leadership Group, whose members will drive strategic direction and the delivery of the organisation’s objectives, relating across the scope of decommissioning activity.
